In just over three weeks I will be jetting off on holiday so I am upping my exercise regime and trying to make healthy switches in my diet - like adding in more protein and veg and getting rid of nasty carbs. I am also trying to cut out my regular cups of tea with sugar and swapping it for green tea instead.
I recently discovered matcha green tea - a Japanese tea that is made from green tea leaves and ground to a powder. It is super strong and is said to have ten times the nurititonal value of regular green tea.
They kindly sent me some tea from the range to take part in the two-week #MatchaChallenge (drinking matcha every day for two weeks). I will be trying it as a drink and adding it to smoothies, yoghurts and porridge to see if it makes a difference to my energy levels! Stay tuned to see how I get on...
Oh and if you are a fan of matcha make sure you check out Tombo cafe in London. It recently ran a six- week pop up in Liberty and it will be opening a new cafe in South Kensington in June. I went along to the Liberty pop up and tried out a matcha juice, brownie and cake (all delicious!) so am very excited about the launch of the new cafe (hello matcha ice cream!).
